Pink Floyd: Syd Barrett featured in rare videos from 1967 debut album

Pink Floyd co-founder Syd Barrett is featured in a pair of rare videos for songs from the band’s 1967 debut album, “The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn.”

Clips for the instrumental “Pow R Toc H” and the space-themed “Astronomy Domine” have resurfaced for fans to watch as part of the group’s ongoing vintage video series.

Accompanying the tunes is interview footage of Barrett and bassist Roger Waters on the BBC program “The Look.”

Pink Floyd’s groundbreaking first record introduced the group beyond the UK underground scene while being hailed as one of the greatest psychedelic albums of all time.

“Piper” reached No. 6 on the UK charts and No. 131 on the US Billboard 200 upon its original release.

Fans will be able to hear some of the songs from the debut next spring when Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason will perform vintage material by the group on a spring 2019 tour of North America.

The 5-week spring series will hit most US major cities after it opens in Vancouver, BC on March 12.

Tickets for most shows went on sale Monday, November 5, with others available starting Friday, November 11 – for details by market, visit
